Wonderful Words

One of my favorite songs of all time, it evokes so much power. My favorite is Avalon's version. Jesus' sacrifice really makes you think about honoring Him in everything you do, especially when it comes to obeying Him. He knows what is best for us, and even if there are things we don't want to do in life, it is our duty to obey Him regardless of how we feel, even if it means getting out of our comfort zones. We all need a healthy fear of God, because He is mighty and powerful, but most of all loves us like crazy, even those who have gone astray. As a human being with finite knowledge, I'm unable to comprehend a love so deep, but I am so thankful my God is love.

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
'Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
'Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand
